Anyone feeling nostalgic?
If you're like me and grew up in the 90's, watching cartoons is a great way to take you back to this golden decade. While most of these animated gems aren't regularly syndicated on their respective networks anymore, a variety of them can be found on your streaming devices. Everything from Cartoon Network to Nickelodeon shows are up to watch, most of them just as funny as when you first watched them back in the day.
Here are 5 great 90's cartoons you can start watching now!
The Ren & Stimpy Show
Parents were united in their quest to get this depraved cartoon off the air in the 90's. Kids however were united in watching this zany and often crude cartoon that has one foul mouthed chihuahua and one stupid cat getting into misguided shenanigans together. Ren & Stimpy were notorious for pushing the envelope on what a kid's cartoon could get away with. Episodes included the pair hitting each other senseless and yelling random insults. For a kid, this was the cartoon that parents simply hated you watching, which made us want to watch it all the more. You can stream the whole series on Hulu!
Notable moments: rubber nipple salesman, log, Powdered Toast Man
Courage the Cowardly Dog
Creepy stuff happens in nowhere. It's up to Courage to save his new home! Courage the Cowardly Dog is what you get when if you put Looney Toons and The Twilight Zone into a blender. What you get is a wildly funny animated program about a smart but awkward dog who tries to save his owners from a collection of spooky monsters, ghouls and ghosts. This show absolutely nailed the balance between funny and frightening, with a lot of running gags about the sour and stupid Eustace mistreating poor Courage. A great cartoon that's still works today, watch it on Netflix!
Notable moments: the chicken from outer space, returning villain Katz, "Stupid dog, you made me look bad!"
Undoubtedly the coolest cartoon show of the 90's. This Nickelodeon program featured unique animation, smart relatable characters and a smooth jazz soundtrack reminiscent of Coltrane and Sonny Rollins. It's protagonist was Arnold, a sensible grade-schooler who helps his friends and family around his neighborhood when they get into jams. The writing on this show is unparalleled. Tackling issues like the Vietnam War, lost love, leaving legacies behind and the importance of urban myths, Hey Arnold! takes you back to a time when a neighborhood was a community of individuals that helped each other through hardships and tribulations. Check out the whole series on Hulu!
Notable moments: stoop kid, pigeon man, anything with Grandpa in it, "Never eat raspberries in the morning shortman."
Ed, Edd 'n' Eddy
Like Hey Arnold!, this Cartoon Network show is about 3 misfit outcast kids on their block and their interactions with their neighbors. Instead of helping them out of jams though, the Eds are trying to scam the other kids out of their money so they can buy jawbreakers. The interactions between the 3 Eds are hilarious and often insightful of how people react in real life. Each has their own distinct personality. Eddy is a smart-mouthed hustler, Ed is a dimwitted dunce with a big heart, and Edd (often called Double D) is a bookworm neat-freak. The show allows the viewer to reminisce about the fun and awkward times during childhood. The whole series can now be viewed on Netflix!
Notable moments: Ed's obsession with chickens and gravy, Rolf's funny accent, the Kanker Sisters, Plank
There's always loom and doom when things go boom in Dexter's Lab. This Cartoon Network show is about one freakishly short child genius and the superlab he has built in the recesses of his room. Dexter is only concerned with science, math and robotics. This proves to be quite problematic as his annoying clutzy sister Deedee is always breaking into his lab and wrecking his creations. This show is smartly written and features some great animation. Watch now on Netflix!
Notable moments: Dexter's rival Mandark, the Justice Friends, Dexter's Dad trying to watch golf
